Copic Coloring

I had a request a bit back for a tut about doing a specific hair color. Since I have a voice again I gave it a go! Check out the vid for all the deets

Just as a refresher the colors I used are E74, E77, E79, E49 W1, W3,W5,W7. You could probably pair that down by a couple but its what I used to get this exact color.

I mentioned in the vid that I was working from a reference photo of Megan Fox (jealous of her hair!!! seriously, mine is never so full and its thin so is never so lovely long BOO) to try and match the color. Here’s the pic

and here is how mine turned out
Not exact but with my limited inventory of colors I think Its pretty good! If you have any requests of questions just let me know and I’ll see if I can answer them for you! I plan on having an upcoming vid on changing your tips and refilling too. My fav skin tone is DRY, envision tumble weeds and cacti, and have the refill on the way with some medium round tips to replace the broad end that I never use 🙂 so look for that!

    Hi Kristy. This is exactly what I was talking about. Thanks you soooo much for making this video. I can not wait to have five minutes to sit and give it a try. I think I will have to quickly sit and watch this a couple of more times before I give it a go. lol….Anyway thanks again, I know I was one of the people to ask you for this. Both of my children have very dark hair just like this. Hugs and Merry Christmas. Lisa G

    I was wondering what I should do or if you had a suggestion when I dont have one of the colors in the base color set. Such as in the E50, E51,E53, and E55, I dont have the E55. This video for example I am missing the E44.
    You are amazing with hair by the way.

    • Kristy says:

      Do you mean you’re missing the E49? For any combo I’d use the closest color you have on hand (for hair it won’t matter as much either) if its a blending situation using a Tip to Tip or Pallet Blending Technique would be your best bet 🙂 HTH!
